FX Announces Premiere Date for the 5th Season of IT’S ALWAYS SUNNY IN PHILADELPHIA

     June 30, 2009


Alright, it’s time FX and the “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia” guys strike a new deal.  Getting only ten or twelve episodes out of the entire year isn’t enough.  You can’t lay a great comedy like “Wild Card, bitches!” on me and then sign off for the rest of the year.  I know it’s a tough show to make especially when you try to factor in scheduling Danny DeVito but there has to be a way to schedule these guys in for more than a measly few months out of the year, right?  They’re worth it, FX.  Cancel “Nip/Tuck” and throw your brilliant comedy series more money.

Until that happens, we’re just going to have to suffice with 12 new episodes of “It’s Always Sunny” which will debut on Thursday, September 17th at 10 PM.  That’s the same night that NBC is rolling out its Thursday night comedy line-up and frankly, watching “30 Rock” and then switching over to “It’s Always Sunny” is more laughter than a human being can sustain.  On second thought, maybe we should be grateful that we only have to survive 12 weeks of greatness.

FX also announced that the second season of “Sons of Anarchy” debuts on September 8th and the sixth season of “Nip/Tuck” debuts in October but I don’t care about either of those shows.  However, I already miss “The Shield”.
